I feel like I have a million and one things to blog about but am lacking the energy to get it online.
But, one of the things I am continually thankful for as each year passes is this blog.
It's served as a virtual scrapbook for our family for over four years now...
so making time to get these moments documented is important to me!
Alright, lets get started, shall we?
I wrapped up our 25 Christmas Books last week and made my first little project on my new
Silhouette Cameo-- numbers for each book for the countdown. They turned out really cute!
I photographed them all under the tree, but we're keeping them under the tree
in a red jingle bell bucket I got from Target a couple of years ago.
Photographing the boys opening the books each day or night has proven to be quite the task.
I had to laugh as I am trying to corral them, get them to pose and smile, snap a picture of the book
and make it all look perfect. IF any of those things HAD happened, and I HAD a perfect snapshot
to show you... it would be anything but accurate as far as documenting the actual moment. Ha!
Sweet Slade and Big Brother Carson opening Book 1 on December 1st.

And last but not least for today's recap... the 5th book on Monday, December 5th!
It's a cute little book I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby: A Special Place for Santa
It was so much fun to collect the Christmas books this year. I look forward to reading them
with my sweet little boys for many years to come. You can read more about
would be a great opportunity to begin to stock up on books if you'd like to bring this tradition
into your home next Christmas. For most, 25 books to buy at once is a big purchase...
but spread out over the course of a year, with gifts from friends and grandparents along the way,
it will not only be do-able, but extra special to do the collecting as a family.
We'll be back in a few days to report on the next few books in our December countdown!
